  • Competition: Spanish Super Cup
  • Date: Sunday, 15th, January 2023
  • Kickoff: 19:00 UK / 20.00 CET
  • Venue: King Fahd International Stadium (Riyadh)

Fans in Saudi Arabia and around the world got what they hoped for. A real spectacle awaits us in Riyadh, because in the battle for the first trophy of the season, Real Madrid and Barcelona will measure their strength.

Let us remind you that last season Real Madrid managed to lift the Spanish Super Cup trophy for the 12th time in their history, as they defeated Athletic Bilbao 2-0 in the final without major complications. The popular "Los Blancos" secured their place in this year's 39th edition of the Super Cup by winning the title of champion of Spain in the last term. The general impression is that Carlo Ancelotti's chosen did not shine in the semi-final of the Spanish Super Cup, but after 120 minutes of exciting football, and then a penalty shootout, they won, thanks to the great Thibaut Courtois (1-1 / 4-3).

Barcelona, without any dilemma, will have huge ambitions in Riyadh to reach their first trophy under the command of Xavi, in the competition in which they hold the record with 13 titles won and as many as 11 lost finals. This year, the Catalans are participating in the final tournament in Saudi Arabia, after finishing second in LaLiga last season. Blaugrana reached the very final of the tournament in Riyadh in the same way as Real. After a very dynamic 120 minutes in the second semi-final, Barca and Real Betis played 2-2, and then on the penalty "roulette", the Catalans celebrated with 4-2.

Real Madrid vs Barcelona Betting Tips: BTTS

Sunday's clash between Barcelona and Real Madrid will be the second "El Clasico" of the season. In the first, LaLiga clash, Madridians celebrated with a routine 3-1, while the meeting in last year's edition of the Super Cup"belonged to "Los Blancos", who were better than Blaugrana after extra time on aggregate 3-2.

Before the very start of the season, Carlo Ancelotti's chosen decorated themselves with the trophy from the European Super Cup, beating Frankfurt in Helsinki (2-0), so now Real has the possibility to win the trophy for the second time this season, and with which they would equal Barcelona in the number of trophies won in the Spanish Super Cup.

The Catalans, meanwhile, have a chance to win their first title of the season and finally end their two-year trophy drought. Furthermore, this trophy in the Spanish Super Cup would be a huge injection of confidence for Xavi and his chosen after suffering an unexpected and early elimination already in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League.

Barcelona is, without a doubt, hungry for trophies and success, but beating the big and mighty Real will be anything but an easy task. Especially, if you take into account the fact that the Madrid club has been a real "punishment expedition" in the finals in recent years, which is best shown by nine trophies from the last 11 finals.

Let's go back to our bet. The attacking zone of Barcelona, led by the experienced and outstanding Roberto Lewandowski, looks killer and impressive. How dangerous they are with the Pole in attack is best shown by the fact that in only one match this season against Spanish teams (in LaLiga and Copa del Rey) they did not shake the net.

Real is clearly squeaks in the back line, since they kept a clean sheet only twice in the last 10 competitive games. However, the attack is definitely the main weapon of Madridians. The fact that in every game since the start of the season they have found the back of the opponent's net at least once sounds incredible.

We are of the opinion that attractive and dynamic football awaits us from the first to the last referee's whistle. There is no doubt that Barca players will leave their hearts on the field and try to enrich their showcases with a new trophy, but Real will be a big test. Considering the attacking potential of these teams, we are confident that we will get an effective duel in which both teams should shake the net at least once.

Xavi, unlike Ancelotti, will have at his disposal absolutely all key players to choose from, given that he has no problems with injuries and suspensions, but some changes in the starting XI will be certain.

Jordi Alba, who is far from his recognizable form, should be replaced by the young and talented Alejandro Balde, who is gaining more and more confidence from the coach with his great performance.

Ansu Fati, who was one of the heroes in the semi-final match against Real Betis, could take Raphina's place, while Ousmane Dembele should move to his signature position, alongside Lewandowski as the main attacking figure.
